Quadratic maps and smooth vector-valued functions: Euler characteristics of level sets

  • A. A. Agrachev

Quadratic maps of RN into RK are studied. Explicit expressions are obtained for the Euler characteristics of level sets of such maps. The Euler characteristics of level sets of smooth vector-valued functions are also evaluated in terms of their values at critical points.
